detroit was in trouble, president obama saved the auto industry and saved 1 million jobs. seven presidents before him republicans and democrats tried to expand health care to all americans. president obama got it done. he made an historic investment to lift our nation's public schools and expanded pell grants so that more young people could afford college. and because he knows that we don't have an ounce of talent to waste, the president took action to lift the shadow of deportation of a generation of young law-abiding immigrants called dreamers. now it's time for congress to enshrine in law their right to pursue their dreams in the only place they've ever called home. america. four years ago, america stood on the brink of a depression. despite incredible odds, and united republican opposition, our president took action and now we've seen 4.5 million new jobs. he knows better than anyone that there's more hard work to do. but we're making progress. and now, we need to make a choice. it's a choice between a country where the middle class pays more so that millionaires can pay less, or a cou

, the guy coming into detroit was all foreign derived. i think it was mistake to mirandize him in 50 minutes because our base of him is foreign intelligence. to me the right entry point was, enemy combatant, nation at war, deal with it that way. on the other hand if someone is discovered and prevented in an attack in the united states by the fbi the roots of that information are law enforcement derived. the going in position is we ought to treat this as a law enforcement problem and enter this into the american court system. i suppose if we stayed her long enough we could think of exceptions but in broad measure my sense is that is how we should deal with it. i hope made it worth your while coming here this afternoon. i hope you have left with more questions than you had when you came in. that was my intent. and thank you very much for the opportunity. and, go air force.
